    Come visit beautiful Florida in the spring! I'll be teaching a 3 day journal workshop at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps in Lake Worth, Florida. We'll have fun painting photos and creating a journal.
  • Workshop in Bruges, Belgium. Stay Tuned for details!
    ***********This 2014 workshop has been postponed. Don't give up though... the coordinator is working hard to make it happen in 2015! *********** I'm SO excited about teaching in Belgium! It will include photo walks in Bruges (Belgium's Little Venice of the North) where we'll explore, photograph and soak up the ambience of this beautiful city. We'll then paint and create with our photos and make an art journal filled with wonderful Belgium memories.

Would you like to do a workshop in Wanaka new Zealand ? I have a sweet wee cottage next to my house that you could stay in I coulod show you around and there are lots of nosy little visitors like quail and fantails in our garden Please email me if you are keen.
I stumbled upon your site after my dearest friend died (last week) I was looking for pictures of birds nests I feel like she guided me to you as we always crafted together and made little books she would have squealed with delight had she lived to see your site.
I am on FB if you would like to befriend me if you really would like to consider new Zealand.
Besides i would love to thank you personally for lifting my sadness with your lovely creativity
